Accident at work that resulted in £1.6 million serious injury claim

We acted for a man in his 30s who sustained a serious foot injury in an accident at work. Liability for the accident was disputed throughout the case. The Claimant developed major complications and infection in the foot and the evidence obtained made it clear that a below the knee amputation was the only option available. Proceedings were issued in the High Court and settlement was reached, by negotiation, with gross damages being agreed at around £1.6 Million.
